Joshua may sack his coach ahead of Usyk rematch

Anthony Joshua is considering overhauling his training team in order to secure victory in the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

This is not the first time Joshua is hoping to win a rematch. The Anglo-Nigerian boxer lost to Andy Ruiz before reclaiming his title during a rematch in Saudi Arabia.

Eddie Hearn has hinted an overhauling of the coaching team is possible ahead of the rematch.  The former WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion has not decided if he will split with long-time coach Rob McCracken yet.

But he is considering his options ahead of his rematch with Ukrainian ace Usyk next year.

Joshua, 32, has visited Virgil Hunter’s gym in Oakland where Joshua Buatsi is currently training and where Amir Khan was once a regular.

Joshua, who celebrated his birthday in LA on Friday, October 15, has also been down to San Diego to visit Canelo Alvarez’s gym where he works with trainer Eddy Reynoso.

He is also considering the logistics of what moving from his Sheffield training base at GB Boxing would entail at this stage of his career.
